CWILL BC– the Children's Writers & Illustrators of BC

We bring books to life!

"I love having illustrators visit our school and our students are absolutely mesmerized by them. Illustrations are what bring a book alive... Every year I try and have at least one illustrator visit our school... It has always been a very memorable visit."

- Julie Desmarais
